restaurants are adding more things like carrots, kale, brussels sprouts to the menu. part of it is driven by the fact that protein is getting more expensive and so restaurants are naturally adding more vegetables from a cost perspective. > brussels sprouts, i'll have to look for that on the menu, i haven't seen them. > > i like them though. and great grains on the health side, they are also reigning in prominence. there certainly is an issue with gluten-free that a lot of consumers are trying to avoid, and so there are gluten-free grains that are out there. couscous and bulghur are some other types of grains that are starting to appear on the menu, and a lot of it is driven by not only consumer demand but also from a cost perspective in terms of operators trying to be more cost-effective on the menu. > are you telling me chicken - isn't it already ubiquitous? more chicken? > > more chicken. but also different styles of chicken. we're seeing a lot more deep- fried chicken on the menu, which, except for some fast food restaurants, you never really saw deep-fried on the menu. in addition, we

the crisis. i asked our brussels correspondent what sort of support france could expect from other eu member states. >> eu representatives have formally ruled out the option of military intervention. the most likely outcome will be that we will find out more about the training mission that is planned, where the eu plans to train malian soldiers to combat on the ground. it is an issue that african soldiers will have to deal with. the eu does not want to get involved too much. we will find out more about the training mission. >> are there any dissenters? this is a job for nato -- and who are saying this is a job for nato? >> nato can only intervene if france formally request aid, and it has not done so. this is a job that has to be done by the ecowas, by the west african soldiers on the ground come together with mali -- on the ground, mali together withan soldier -- on the ground, together with malian soldiers. it was an action taken by an individual member state, i.e., france. the member states say they will support friends, but they will not get their boots on the ground. >> thanks for that.

our brussels correspondent about the message coming out of the foreign ministers' meeting. >> the political message is one of total support for france and what it is doing in mali, but a deep reluctance to engage militarily. a lot of offers of support for the french in terms of equipment and finance in fact from germany, from britain, ireland, sweden, and spain in particular, but as i say, no expectation whatsoever that the other eu countries will join france with boots on the ground. in fact, a statement from the foreign ministers invited or encouraged a group of west african countries to engage more directly now on the ground. this is seen not necessarily in any way as an eu matter, but very much something for france because of its historical ties to mali and the west african troops because of the geography, and at a bigger level, for the united nations to intervene if it wants to, but there is no doubting the eu's commitment in terms of finance and military expertise, military equipment to help france resolve this crisis quickly. one of the main things that the eu forei
